This is a licensed figure with the full backing of 2000AD, the British anthology comic that has been the home of Judge Dredd since his debut in Prog 2 in 1977. Created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra Judge Dredd has proven to be an ever popular character.
The figure is available to pre-order on their website $65.00
Designed with close cooperation with 2000AD’s owners, Rebellion. The Judge Dredd artist Ben Wilsher assisted with the design.
Ben Wilsher has illustrated a number of Judge Dredd strips in 2000AD including The Skinning Room (Progs 1700 to 1704) and the ‘Dredd lite’ story Bender (Progs 1845 to 1849).
The figure isn’t an exact copy of Wilsher’s Dredd, you can see that from the cover of Prog 1831 here. They’ve taken their own direction with the interpretation and some people may spot elements from other artists.
Hopefully this will be well received in the Action Figure collectors community.
